Co-Presented with Copper Canyon Press

Just in time for Earth Day, we’ll ​be celebrating eco-poetics as a mode of creative resistance​. This reading and discussion will launch the​ Copper Canyon Press​ anthology HERE: Poems for the Planet. Featuring poets who write with urgency and hope about the natural world, the event is supported by three organizations that create a better and more just landscape for poets and poetry: Cave Canem, Cant​oMundo, and Kundiman.

Kimiko Hahn is the author of nine books of poetry, including The Artist’s Daughter (2002), The Narrow Road to the Interior (2006), Toxic Flora (2010), and Brain Fever (2014). Hahn is the winner of the PEN/Voelcker Award for Poetry, the American Book Award, and the Shelley Memorial Award from the Poetry Society of America. She has also been awarded fellowships from the New York Foundation for the Arts, the Guggenheim Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Arts. Hahn teaches in the MFA program at Queens College.
